Commercial deodorants are harmful to your skin and using such chemical-loaded deodorants are associated with certain kinds of cancer risks. So, why not preparing a non-toxic deodorant at home with some amazing ingredients? In fact, few studies have revealed that parabens found in deodorants could increase the risks of breast cancer and other forms of cancer in women. Also, aluminum found in antiperspirant deodorants could increase the risks of cancer.
Also, propylene glycol which is found in large doses in your deodorant spray can damage your central nervous system, heart, as well as liver. The phthalates found in deodorants increase the risk of birth defects whereas the triclosan found in the chemical-stuffed deodorants is actually a pesticide. So, to stay away from the horrible reactions caused due to the chemicals present in the deodorants and antiperspirants you need to try preparing a natural deodorant spray at home for regular usage.
